Have you ever woken up with a sore shoulder?
Have you ever overextended your shoulder in a way that you know you shouldn’t have?
Yes and yes for me.
Sore shoulders are all too familiar with me.
I remember when I used to play baseball in high school and I would always throw the ball as hard as I possibly could.
Those overhand throws came with a price even as a young high school kid.
I became acquainted with shoulder problems that MLB players, especially pitchers, were notorious for.
Shoulder pain is no fun.
Not being able to have a full range of motion on your shoulders because of pain or injury is anything but enjoyable.
But the good news is that if you have shoulder pain, it doesn’t have to stay like that.
And that brings me to today’s exercise topic, isometric shoulder abduction.
